-At the recent term of Federal
Court in Anderson Rev. Stephen O.
Whitman, former head of the Oonee
Orphanage, was convicted of viola
tion of the Federal prohibition law,
.md he was given a sentence which
ci* ll ed for the payment of a fine of
six hundred dollars or the serving of
?ix months in the Spartanburg jail.
The judge stated thai he was giving
Rev. Whitman mote than the ordi
nary sentence because, occupying
the position he did and having enter
ed upon ministerial work, he should
liave boen above tampering in any
way with liquor. We have been un
able to learn as yet whether or not
Mr Whit.man was able to arrange
for the payment of his tine, but lt is
supposed that he has already entered
upon the service of his sentence in
tho Spartanburg jail. Only recently,
In a conversation In The Courier of
fice, Whitman maintained stoutly
that he was absolutely Innocent of
\ny offense against the prohibition
laws, but evidently there was suffi
cient testimony nnd evidence |nd
duced at the hearing to convince the
Jury and the Judge differently.

a little moro than a week a go. No
dcflnito news of his whereabouts
could bo obtained, and up to yester
day (Tuesday) morning his where-1
abouts was as great a mystery as
ever. Early Tuesday morning, how- !
ever, an unusual noise was heard in
the smokehouse of his daughter.who j
lives not far from her father's home,
and investigation proved |hnt the
wanderer had returned and waa
seeking lo make himself comfortable I
in this outbuilding. Mr. Bennien isl
in very unfortunate condition, it is!
said, his mind hoing very badly dis
turbed, and he was totally unrhlc to ,
give any coherent account of himself
since Iiis absence from home. Ho
was said lo be very restless and la
boring under'a .number of illusions
when first found, but during Tues
day afternoon had become more at
ease, and his mind apparently a lit
tle moro clear. There aro many who
will Join us in the hope that ho may
soon bo restored to his normal con
dition. Mr. Boardon is about 50 or
55 years of age.
